Smile User defined aggregate field names for reports

Ok, this is definitely something that only Baan could provide, however, I'll go and post it here...

When defining an aggregate function in a report field, the report compiler internally assigns a variable for it (eg. "total..1"). So, you may do calculations in the report like value = total..1 / total..3, but this is generally not advisable, since the field names are likely to change if you introduce new report fields.

This could easily be overcome if one could enter a variable name that should be used for such an aggregate field. The report compiler would then use that particular variable name instead of a generated one.

With this litte enhancement e.g. percentage calculation on total fields would be much faster to implement than today.
